Month: October 2022

It was an early Tuesday morning and I was making a bagel with cream cheese and jelly for my youngest daughter, Marissa, so she could take it to school since we were running late. My oldest daughter, Clarissa, who was twelve at the time, walked into the kitchen, opened the refrigerator, and poured herself a glass of orange juice. I asked him if he wanted a bagel too and he was quick to reply, “Oh god no! Do you have any idea how many calories are in that stuff, Dad? I didn’t think much of it at the time, but I was alarmed enough to share this.” with her mom. Later that night we sat down and had a chat with her and she went on about how fat she was. This coming from a 12-year-old girl who, at the time, weighed only 90 pounds. We stressed to her the importance of eat well and that all the images I saw on television and in magazines were not real, I looked my daughter straight in the eye and told her that in many parts of the world there were children who as of 3 in the afternoon still had not eating breakfast, let alone worrying about her weight. I mentioned needing to be thankful for what we had, our daily bread as I called it. I really hoped to God that it all went down. Fortunately, we never really had any more problems with her or with my other two children open that topic. Turns out our family has been lucky. There now appears to be a growing epidemic of eating disorders in the US among ‘Tweens’ (children between the ages of 9 and 12 in the childhood and adolescence stage).

I do not want to eat anything!

Now fast forward to a few years later. One day I was watching television and was suddenly very alarmed by a news report. The program talked about Tweenorexia; a new problem facing children today. The reporter began to say that more than 80% of 10-year-olds were afraid of getting fat. You read that right, 80% of TEN year olds! My youngest son is now 11, so I sat there and watched the show intently. They were interviewing a girl from Chattanooga, Tennessee named Shae. She was the typical normal ten year old girl. Shae has been on the gymnastics team since she was four years old. So one day she decided to leave the team to concentrate on her social life and her studies. A month after leaving her mother, Michele Walker, she began to notice the changes in her daughter. Michele sometimes listened to the comments Shae made while she was looking at herself in the mirror. She heard her exclaim one day “Look how fat I am!

Of course, if he saw her, he’d wonder what she was talking about, since she weighed the normal 85 pounds for her height. Shae, speaking now in the interview, mentions how she would often pick at the fat on her stomach. Though it was just skin, in Shae’s mind they were signs of imperfection. She shortly after she refused to eat anything but salads. She then became obsessed with exercising. Shae began wearing baggy clothing to hide her shrinking body and weight from her family and friends. In three months, she dropped from her healthy 85 pounds to just 68. Her mother was so alarmed and concerned about her appearance that she took a photo of her in a bathing suit to show her how thin she is. I was. Now only 10 years old, Shae had become anorexic. Only ten years!

As I looked at this little girl, I couldn’t help but look at a photo of my three daughters hanging on the living room wall and shuddered. That could have been, still being one of my girls. I felt the pain of the mother and could only imagine what she would have done if she had been one of my children.

Dying to be thin; How far will the children go?

It wasn’t long before Shae had to end up hospitalized in an eating disorder clinic. For her, it had become a life or death situation. Shae had to be fed through a feeding tube to slowly regain her normal weight. Here was this girl who admits on camera that she had suicidal thoughts at age 10. Suicide at 10 years old? Life is hard enough for kids to deal with weight issues so early in life. After months of therapy at a camp for kids like her, Shae is back to eating healthy. Now, three years later, she reviews everything that happened to her with the experience of an adult. She says that she no longer has feelings of imperfection. Shae now accepts herself for who she is. This story is at once disturbing, worrying, and surprising. What have we become as a society that children so young have to go through this?

The truth is that all parents should be concerned because the numbers are terribly staggering. A recent study of elementary school teachers found that 60% of them say that eating disorders are a problem in their classroom. 16% of girls ages 8-11 are on a diet! The numbers for young children, although slightly lower, appear to be increasing.

The signs to look for; They could save your son!

Many times while my daughters were watching TV or flipping through magazines, they would talk to each other about how perfect and slim all the models or actresses looked. “Real life isn’t like that,” she often told them, hoping they would assimilate. Desperately trying to help you not feel inferior to the characters you saw on TV or saw in commercials, I brought this message home. However, this is why we as parents need to listen and be aware of not only what our children are seeing, but also what they are thinking and saying. What or who influences their decisions? Some of the first signs of an anorexic teenager are anxiety, depression, and an obsession with perfection. Signs that something may be wrong are a disruption in the child’s normal behavior, personality changes, and/or mood swings. Reserved behavior coupled with the child becoming withdrawn or overly anxious should be cause for alarm bells to go off. Of course, if he or she insists on taking a sudden shower after a meal, be aware that this may be a way of masking purging. Once your son or daughter starts talking about wanting to omit an entire group of foods from the menu, pay more attention to them. If he or she suddenly overexercises, this should immediately cause a lightbulb to go off in her head. At this point, you should talk to your children and perhaps see a doctor together who can emphasize the importance of eating from all food groups. Remember that anti-obesity messages in schools can sometimes backfire.

The perfect look. Are TV and magazine ads to blame?

What role do teen movie stars play?

You may be surprised at the HUGE influence a teen pop star or celebrity can have on the decisions your child may make. I write this article and shake my head to see how completely off track we have become as a society. When 8-11 year olds, normal by weight + height standards, feel the need to go on a diet, it’s sad and disturbing. But can we blame then when you see it everywhere? Billboards and TV, movies and video games, magazines and the Internet. Especially toys like barbie dolls, who always seem to have the perfect figure. How many exercise commercials do you see in a typical day? Every image that is thrown our way always shows the perfect body! The perfect face! Is the film industry to blame? How many teen movie stars do we see on TV looking dangerously thin? Some, as if they glorified anorexia. Sometimes their influence trumps any parenting advice we can give our children. I think we’ve become obsessed with perfection. No normal adult can compete and deal with that on a daily basis. How? And if we as mature adults can’t deal with it sometimes. How can we ask our children to do it?

Many US real estate investors are beginning to look beyond the border for alternatives to an uncertain market; While prices are low, experts are still unsure if prices have bottomed out, with some warning that low prices will remain low for quite some time. Real estate in Mexico offers an alternative close to home that investors find attractive.

Property prices in Mexico, in general, were much less affected by the US housing bubble and international recession than the US itself and many other places. Only in certain tourism hot spots (specifically those that were in the midst of a boom where pre-recession demand from American buyers created a glut of new construction that is still on the market) did prices drop, and this was less severe. that in the US price reductions are disappearing and sellers are re-listing their properties at “normal” 2007/2008 prices.

In most of the country, prices have continued in a slow but steady upward direction. Both situations can provide excellent opportunities for investors.

Those who invest in the beachfront resort areas may still find some of the leftover price reductions, or those special cases where a buyer has reasons unrelated to the global economy to sell quickly at a lower price. The return to a healthy upward movement in property sales prices means that these opportunities will pay off in the return of resale. As tourism continues to grow in Mexico as well, the rental income market is also an excellent option to generate a return on a real estate investment.

In the rest of Mexico, prices have generally remained lower. Making a lower value investment here will show slower appreciation, but also appreciation that is less susceptible to fluctuations in the US economy. Some colonial cities, as well as lakefront towns, are being discovered by international tourism and could make a more dramatic comeback as the tourism economy takes off.

Compared to the US market, which on the one hand has been erratic at times and, on the other hand, leaves some smaller investors feeling that the situation is largely manipulated by large investment corporations with inside information, the Mexico’s real estate market is even less “sophisticated.” “Which means that the opportunity for this type of large-scale manipulation is not available. For smaller investors, this leaves more freedom to find high-potential properties or very stable and safe investments, with more confidence that an erratic market it won’t cost them a good chunk of their life savings.

The Internet now makes it easier than ever for businesses to connect with people around the world. While this opens up many new avenues and opportunities, it can make communications costly if you travel regularly for face-to-face meetings or drag on if you rely on emails.

Whether you need to talk to remote employees, international clients, or vendors across the country, Skype is the business communications tool that can keep things simple and personal while saving everyone time and money.

The key to running a successful business meeting on Skype is simply being prepared. While you can’t prepare for every hiccup and glitch, there are plenty of ways you can prepare to mitigate interruptions and keep attendees engaged, here are our top tips:

pre-meeting preparation

Create a group list with everyone’s Skype ID

The first thing you need to do is make sure you have the correct Skype ID for everyone who will be attending the virtual meeting and add them all to a new group list. In this way, you can quickly and simply call everyone at once throughout the day.

Make it clear who is calling who

To avoid any confusion, make it clear in your meeting invitation that you will be calling everyone to avoid receiving multiple calls just as the meeting is supposed to start.

Set start and end times (and be aware of time zones)

Carefully consider your meeting time if you include people in different time zones. Set a start and end time for the meeting that you know you can realistically meet.

Create and distribute an agenda

To avoid a stereotypical “meaningless” meeting, make sure you have drawn up an agenda before the meeting and distribute it with the invitation so that everyone has time to think about the points being discussed. It’s a great idea to try to get everyone involved in the agenda to keep people on their toes and engaged.

arrive early

If you’re online early, it gives you time to resolve any issues you or other attendees have with microphones, Wi-Fi connections, or webcams before the start time to avoid wasting precious time on setup.

During the meeting

Use video if possible

While it may not always be possible for everyone to use video, it’s good to encourage them when possible. It’s much easier to keep meeting attendees engaged if everyone can see each other, not only does it make the experience more personal, but it also makes people less likely to give in to distractions.

Turn off distractions

On the subject of distractions, be sure to minimize any distractions you may have by choosing a quiet room to call into the meeting and closing your emails during the session. There’s nothing more distracting than an intriguing email that pops up at the bottom of your screen when you’re in the middle of a sentence.

Decide actions on the call

To prevent your meeting from becoming a lot of talk followed by little action, be sure to leave time on the call to decide what action to take as a result of the meeting. Once the actions have been decided, you can discuss who will be responsible for each and when they can reasonably be completed.

After the conference

Distribute notes and agreed actions

Finally, so that everything is well anchored and for the sake of total clarity, it is useful to send a copy of the minutes of the meeting and the agreed actions to all the attendees.

While it can be difficult to learn a new language as an adult, there are some that tax our faculties more than others. Although it is a bit subjective which language is the most difficult to learn, there are some that are definitely more difficult than others. And instead of listing very obscure languages ​​that are no doubt difficult (Tamil, Icelandic, Estonian, Polish, Hungarian), here are some of the most widely spoken and challenging ones. If you ever travel to places where these languages ​​are spoken, it may be easier to get a personal translator.


Since you are reading this in English, you obviously speak English. You may be wondering if English is difficult for non-native speakers to learn. If you’re fluent, you can overlook the oddities that make it a difficult language to learn: however, there are inconsistencies in spelling (“i before e except after c”) and pronunciation (ration does not rhyme with nation – while than rationally it should). English has also borrowed words and phrases from various languages ​​(particularly French), occasionally turning it into a hodgepodge that doesn’t always make sense.

The most complicated of the rest – Japanese

Compared to Japanese, English is a walk in the park. For starters, Japanese has three “alphabets” or writing characters: kanji, hiragana, and katakana. In other words, to be truly fluent, you have to learn three alphabets, all of which are understood by other native speakers. Some people consider it to have four alphabets, as there is one called ‘romaji’ which is generally used to help foreigners – it is a phonetic translation into Roman characters.

There are approximately 6,000 kanji characters, and the only way to know what they mean is to memorize them (since guessing the meaning is next to impossible). Hiragana and katakana have about 50 characters each that are used to form multiple words, which means you can make mistakes if the correct word elements are used in the wrong order.

There are some other difficulties. If your native language is English and you are learning Japanese then it can be difficult because Japanese grammar is almost opposite or inverse to English grammatical structure. Another difference from English is that the Japanese tend to have a roundabout way of talking about things; instead of saying yes or no directly, they could say “I’m thinking so” or “maybe yes”. Then there are different forms of Japanese that are used depending on the situation you are in: formal, everyday, and even different ways of speaking to men or women. If that’s not confusing enough, Japan has different dialects that are spoken in different cities.


One of the most widely spoken languages ​​in the world is not the easiest to learn. One problem with Chinese is an alphabet that is unique and quite difficult to master. If you usually read in English, this is an immediate test, especially since there are about 20,000 characters that are difficult to draw, let alone memorize.

Once you get over the Chinese reading problems, there are many more differences: in Chinese there are no cases, no genders, no tenses, no verb changes. While the grammar may not be too difficult, it is very different from English, and tonal pronunciation (where different tones of the same words mean completely different things) is difficult to master.


Arabic is a language where the spoken and printed language (in the media, books, and online) are quite different. There are many dialects, so an Arabic speaker from one region may have difficulty understanding someone from another.

Reading and writing is difficult as letters can change shape depending on where they are written in a word, plurals often change the word much more than in other languages ​​(unlike easy changes in English, which often just add a ‘s’). Then there is the fact that it reads from left to right.

An Honorable Mention: Finnish

Finnish is only really spoken in Finland (with a few Finns in Sweden and Norway). It is a complex language, which requires a lot of patience to learn.

Much of Finnish seems to include multiple vowels, all strung together over and over again, making the words extremely long and difficult to read, let alone pronounce.

Finnish has no Germanic or Latin roots, so much of the vocabulary is completely foreign to English speakers. There are also 15 noun cases, compared to English which only has five, as well as six types of verbs.

Anyone who homeschools knows that it can be difficult to keep kids focused on their work. There are many distractions that can distract you or your child, and this is particularly difficult for children with ADD/ADHD.

If you have a child with ADD or ADHD, you’re probably constantly looking for solutions. The schedule seems to be the biggest challenge for many homeschooling moms. The Pomodoro Technique may be just what you and your child need to get things done.

What is the Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is actually from a book on time management. It delves into how we perceive time and how to change our habits and thought processes to better use our time.

If you are thinking of using this technique, you should definitely get the book and read it in its entirety so that you fully understand all the fundamentals that cannot be summarized in this article. But the part that can really benefit your child’s homeschooling is the timer technique that the book focuses on.

How the Pomodoro Technique Works

The first thing you need to do is find a digital timer that your child can easily use. Obviously, this will vary depending on your child and her age. Everything from clocks to kitchen timers work well, but portable timers are best as they can be used anywhere.

As you begin to use the Pomodoro Technique, sit down with your child and make a list of what needs to be accomplished. Do this the night before or first thing in the morning.

For each item on the list, set the timer to 25 minutes. Have your child work on the article for 25 minutes, and when the timer goes off, let them take a break. 5 minutes is the recommended break time, but some people will take a 10-minute break. Whatever time frame you choose, just make sure your child sticks to it.

Once the break is over, they reset the timer for 25 minutes and continue with the previous item on the list if it wasn’t finished, or start with the next one.

give them something to look forward to

This method can be very effective for anyone, but for a homeschooler with ADD or ADHD, it really can be a breath of fresh air. The child can work on his projects with a better attitude, because he knows that there is a finite time before he gets to do something that he wants to do. Kids with ADD/ADHD can really get stuck if they don’t know how long a project will take and feel like they’re stuck there until it’s done. When they know there’s a timer counting down and then they’ll be allowed to do something fun, they can apply themselves better. There is light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak.

Make sure the reward is presented early, especially when you first start using this method. It can be reading, drawing, going out and playing, or whatever you and your child decide. Keep in mind that for kids with ADHD, physical activity during breaks can help them focus even better.

Try the Pomodoro Technique for a week and see how it works for your child. It may be just the right amount of structure and flexibility that they need, and you may even find yourself doing more.

Arianna Huffington, founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, the sixth most popular online news source, details the state of the nation’s middle class. Her new book is titled “Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream.” She reads her perspective and see if she agrees.

Third World America it is presented in five sections, with Chapter One echoing the title of the book. It is packed with stories and statistics highlighting the decline of the American middle class. How do you define “middle class”? Self-definition is used, says Huffington. “If you consider yourself middle class, are middle class.”

The nation’s fading industrial base, eroding educational system, and decaying infrastructure all contribute to the decline; as is high unemployment, where one in six Americans is unemployed or underemployed. He meets Dean B., who, at age 35, was laid off from his IT job in February 2009 and is still unemployed. Kimberly B. sold her wedding ring on Craigslist to pay her family’s utility bills.

Huffington further explores the plight of the middle class, citing fear as a predominant emotion. expunged 401(k)s, dwindling pensions, prolific foreclosures, and signs of a future Social Security collapse; feeds anguish. Many now believe that reaching the middle class is a matter of luck, not unlike a prize in a scratch-off lottery ticket.

America’s infrastructure is crumbling, declares Huffington, with insufficient state and federal funding. Roads, power grids, waterways, railways, and bridges are some of the casualties. Some water pipes, originally laid during the Civil War, are working dangerously.

Think back to August 2007, when the Interstate 35W steel truss bridge over the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis collapsed; killing 13 people and injuring 145. Previous patchwork repairs proved insufficient.

The nation’s school system is anemic, with the US ranking 25th in math and 21st in science among 30 developed countries; according to the classification of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. In 2009, the United States’ broadband connection ranked 15th among industrialized countries.

The decline of the American middle class has been in the making for decades. In the late 1980s, technology, outsourcing and job losses in manufacturing kicked off a reeling middle-class economy with stagnant wages.

The election of Ronald Regan saw the proliferation of free-market beliefs: less government intervention could better determine winners and losers in society. Regan also ushered in the era of the great divide between wealthy Americans and the middle class; which continues today.

Huffington says that an unregulated free market is sooner or later corrupted by fraud and excess. He witnesses the bank bailouts and the Wall Street debacle of 2008.

American politics is broken, as powerful lobbyists and American companies rule Washington. In 2010, three examples of regulatory failures due to corporate pampering were the explosion at the Upper Branch mine in West Virginia; the BP oil explosion in the Gulf of Mexico; and the ongoing aftershock of the financial collapse, including fraud charges against Goldman Sachs. The voice of the middle class is but an echo in the chambers of the Capitol.

Huffington writes animated analogies to prove his points. When he talks about influential lobbyists, he says, “And like a swarm of termites reducing a house to sawdust, wealthy interests and their lobbyists are eating away at the foundation of our democracy.”

Each chapter concludes with a profile of a once-successful middle-class American who is now struggling financially. His stories offer gems from the 21st century perspective, including “Stability is long gone, so you better be doing something you love!”

Third World America The title is extreme, admits Huffington, used to emphasize our nation’s possible future without serious reform. She optimistically concludes that our descent into a Third World nation “is not a done deal.”

Americans are known for being positive, progressive people with a positive attitude. Stopping the descent into a Third World nation will not be easy. It will require bold initiatives from the public and private sectors and personal responsibility. Now, more than ever, we must exploit the least utilized leadership resource available: ourselves. We will continue to need the raw energy that only big government and appropriations can provide.

Ultimately, change happens on a local and personal level. Today it’s up to us to help each other and ourselves. She advocates breaking up with the big bank of hers. Executives accepted government bailout, record bonuses paid; however, they are not sympathetic to Americans facing foreclosure. Work with community banks and credit unions instead. The greatest antidote to despair is action; and resilience is key to surviving and thriving in the 21st century.

Huffington reflects the message of Robert B. Reich, said in his book published at the same time, Replica: The nextEconomy and the future of America. Reich, a former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration, also endorses Third World America.

A book, presents a voice. Although some will dispute Huffington’s perspective, Third World America It is a reading that invites reflection on the present and future state of the nation.

Starting a new diet can be very challenging, from figuring out what foods you can and cannot eat, what time of day you should eat, and of course how many calories you should eat to lose weight.

Fortunately, figuring out the correct number of calories for your own body is a fairly simple calculation. The number of calories you can eat per day is based on a few different factors, including your age, gender, weight, height, and finally, your general activity level. In general, women need fewer calories per day than men, and the more active you are in daily life, the more you can eat without gaining weight.

There are many online calorie calculators to find out how many calories your body needs each day to maintain your weight. For example, a 30-year-old woman who weighs 150 pounds and is 5 feet 3 inches tall with a slightly active lifestyle (perhaps exercising 1 or 2 times a week) burns about 1,873 calories per day.

This means that this woman can eat up to 1,873 calories every day to maintain her current weight. Figuring out how many calories she should eat from here is pretty simple. A pound of fat has 3,500 calories, so to lose 1 pound of fat per week, she would have to cut 500 calories from her diet per day. So she could eat 1,373 calories per day to lose weight.

If she went on a diet and ate 1,373 calories per day on average, she would lose 1 pound of fat per week. Going below 1,200 calories per day is generally not recommended for anyone. If she does, she can slow down her metabolism and keep her from losing much fat, which is incredibly counterproductive, especially since she’s most likely torturing herself on such a low-calorie diet.

A better idea would be to combine a 500 calorie deficit and increase the amount of exercise you do to burn an additional 500 calories per day. This would create a fat burn of 1000 calories per day and would mean losing 2 pounds of fat per week.

So to determine how many calories you should eat to lose weight, calculate how many calories you burn using an online calculator and subtract 500.

Another quick way to get an estimate of your daily calorie burn is to multiply your weight by 13 if you don’t exercise at all, by 16 if you exercise a few times a week, and by 19 if you exercise every day for a period of time. hour or more. However, you’ll get more accurate numbers if you use a calculator that incorporates your age and height.
